I've removed the package nspluginwrapper completely for now. It's
actually only useful for Flash and not needed with a native 64bit plugin.

if you're using the new 64-bit flashplayer, you shouldn't need any ndiswrapper
stuff. i just renamed everything related and copied the new player into

Where it's copied is not really important once you know what is
installed where. RPM packages place the stuff under
/usr/$LIB/browser-plugins by convention. Since some Mozilla versions
there is also /usr/$LIB/mozilla/plugins which is always scanned for plugins.


Phani, Wolfgang, All,

I think I may have found the real problem with my flash install on FF 3.6.9. Looking at add-ons -> plugins, I somehow have 2 shockwave flash players installed (screenshot of plugins page below):


The screenshot shows both:

Shockwave Flash 10.2 d161 (the new one)
Shockwave Flash 9.0 r100 (the one causing problems)

If I disable the old 9.0 r100 flash just quits completely (yep, I restarted FF after disabling it).

Where does this thing hide and how can I remove it?
